Wyndham Rewards Visa issued by Barclays

Wyndham Rewards Visa issued by Barclays

FM Mini Review: This card is great for its signup bonus (when the 45K bonus is available). It's also pretty good to keep to get 9,000 bonus points per year + status w/ Wyndham & Caesar's.

Card Type: Visa Signature or Platinum


Earning rate: ⚬ 5X Wyndham ⚬ 2X gas, utility, & grocery ⚬ 1X everywhere else

Noteworthy perks: ⚬ 6,000 bonus points every account anniversary + 3,000 points for Platinum elites ⚬ Platinum status (matches to Caesar's Total Rewards Platinum)


Wyndham has a unique program in which free nights cost 15,000 points per night regardless of the property. So, you could waste points by booking a Knight's Inn or get great value from an expensive resort.

Wyndham also offers "Go Fast" rewards for 3,000 points per night plus cash. Always compare to the best cash rate available to see if the rates are any good.


Automatic Wyndham Platinum Status:

  • Early check-in
  • Annual 3,000 point bonus
  • Caesar's status match to Platinum
Caesar's Platinum Status:
  • Free or discounted hotel stays
  • Gift up to 5,000 Reward Credits to a friend
  • 15% discount at casino shops
  • Member pricing at casino restaurants
  • Free valet & self-parking at many destinations, including Las Vegas and Atlantic City
  • Complimentary stay at Atlantis, Paradise Island
  • 10% discount on select Norwegian Cruise Line vacations

Keep or Cancel?

I think this card is a keeper. By keeping this card, you get 9,000 bonus points per year (6,000 from the credit card and 3,000 from Platinum status). That means that every two years you'll earn enough points for a free night (15K points) plus a Go Fast reward (3K points + cash copay).

The 45k offer is back, per DoC: https://www.doctorofcredit.com/ymmv-barclays-wyndham-45000-point-offer/

Just wondering where you’d rank this new offer.
